On Sunday, May 6, 2012, Meredith College held commencement exercises in historic McIver Amphitheater. This was the first commencement for President Jo Allen, '80, since her return to Meredith to serve as the College's first alumna president.
The sea of maroon caps and gowns clustered in the center of the Amphitheater was striking, and was new this year. The undergraduate Class of 2012 voted to wear maroon regalia as a way of expressing their pride in Meredith's heritage and distinguish themselves from other colleges in the area. Maroon is Meredith's school color.
Alumna Silda Wall Spitzer, '80, delivered the 2012 commencement address. Spitzer, former First Lady of the State of New York, has had a highly successful career spanning the private, non-profit and public sectors. more
